Happy Thursday. That came quick, huh? I still feel like I’m playing catch-up from last week. So many projects, so many moving parts—I love it, but I would totally be lost without my to-do list(s). I can tell things are extra busy when I have to write numbers next to the different items to remind myself how to prioritize. I used to do that when I worked in long term care but fell out of the habit when I went back to in-patient clinical work. In the past 6 months or so, I’ve started to rely on that system on the days I work from home writing or seeing clients. Good thing Thursdays are all about steam-of-consciousness over here!
*Speaking of last week, Lindsay at The Lean Green Bean posted a great recap of our trip to Minneapolis. Because a few people asked, here are some of the other RDs/Bloggers who attended:
· Katie from www.MomToMomNutrition.com
· Ann from www.dunawaydietetics.com/
· Lesley from www.balancednutritionatlanta.com
· Abigail from www.thesoulofhealth.com
· Danielle from www.foodconfidence.com
· Brittany from www.eatingbirdfood.com
· Lisa Cain from www.snackgirl.com
*Still speaking of last week, this is probably the most hilariously “me” photo ever:
What can I say? We Italians talk with our hands. There are also way too many photos of me from over the years with my first finger and thumb together like that in some kind of unconscious meditative anchor or whatnot. Maybe it’s my brain’s way of calming me when I have to speak in front of strangers? I am completely calm when I know I have the floor, as in a presentation or public speaking event, but when it comes to raising my hand and chiming in to a group discussion, I am that person blushing and fumbling my way through a bunch of “this is probably silly, but….” and “I’m sorry, but…” ridiculousness.
*In other ridiculousness, I’m quoted in a piece on Men’s Journal about adults using Pedialyte as a hangover aid or workout recovery drink.
* I need help with my inbox. I pulled out my phone the other night to show someone a picture, and they said, “Wow, that’s a lot of emails.” And I’d thought 550 unread emails actually sounded pretty moderate…
Better get back to it.
What’s on your mind today?
